16th October 2016. Hiking and geo-tour to the Taffonis at Peñas de Cabrera (Casabermeja)
The last geotour at Peñas de Cabrera (Casabermeja) noted an exceptional natural heritage assemblage in our mountains which were highly remarked by the Taffonis. Those, a metric cavities excavated by the wind action on Permian siliceous sandstones (230 Mll.years), where the settlement of ancient prehistoric communities dated from Copper age to Bronze.
The ancient paintings made with iron oxides increased even more the geological value of such natural place.
We aimed to elevate the natural value of such extraordinary place which indeed require more attention as protection of its features like LIG (Place of remarkable geological value) in Andalucia region.
